HPD COMMISSIONER VISNAUSKAS ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT TEAM TO BUILD 1,193 NEW APARTMENTS IN SECOND PHASE OF HUNTER’S POINT SOUTH MEGA PROJECT


December 5, 2013


Quote:
NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) Commissioner RuthAnne Visnauskas announced today that a development team consisting of TF Cornerstone and Selfhelp has been selected to build Phase II of the City’s massive Hunter’s Point South development. The developers were chosen through a competitive Request for Proposals (RFP). The site, referred to as Parcel C, located in Long Island City, Queens and bounded by Borden Avenue to the north, 2nd Street to the east, 54th Avenue to the south, and Center Boulevard to the west, will be developed into two high-rise buildings with a total of 1,193 new apartments. Of the total, 796 apartments will be affordable, with 100 of those units reserved for low-income senior citizens. The remainder of the apartments will be market-rate. Phase II will also feature a fitness facility, rooftop gardens and decks, children’s playroom, an on-site Senior recreational center and other amenities.

"We are excited to be working with TF Cornerstone and Selfhelp to build this next phase of the largest affordable housing development undertaken since the 1970s,"said HPD Commissioner RuthAnne Visnauskas. "From our most vulnerable populations to those in our middle-class, the challenges of finding an affordable home and the cost of living with rent burden are experiences that many New Yorkers share. This second phase of Hunter’s Point South will create nearly 800 affordable apartments, in a mixed-income community, new space for local arts and community groups, and new opportunity for economic growth. But most important, it will be a place where our senior citizens will have rents they can afford and supportive services, and where hardworking moderate- and middle-income New York families can put down roots and grow with this vibrant and flourishing neighborhood.”

Consisting of a total of more than 1,200,000-square-feet, development of Parcel C will create 1,193 new apartments with a mix of studio, one- , two- ,and three-bedroom units. Of 796 affordable apartments, 696 units will be targeted to moderate- and middle-income families with household incomes ranging from 105% of Area Median Income (AMI) to 155% AMI, which is equivalent to $111,670 to $141,735 per year for a family of four. Roughly 50% of the moderate- and middle-income affordable units are expected to be a mix of larger family-sized two- and three-bedroom apartments.

Designed by Office of Design & Architecture, with SLCE Architects, the proposal creates two new iconic towers to enhance the Queens skyline with stepped terraces that echo the Art Deco skyscrapers of Manhattan. The tower to the north will be 41 floors and the tower to the south will be 36 floors. The design incorporates numerous community green spaces throughout the different levels of the building, including two urban farming plateaus.

Hunter’s Point South site C is the second phase of what will become the largest affordable housing development in New York City since the early 1970s when Co-op City and Starrett City were completed. In 2009 the City acquired the entire 30-acre Hunter’s Point South site from the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey at the cost of $100 million dollars. Phase I which includes Parcels A and B is currently under construction and will provide 925 permanently affordable units when complete. When the entire multi-phase Hunter’s Point South development project is completed the City will have added approximately 5,000 new units of housing to the Queens waterfront, a minimum of 60 percent or 3,000 units of which will be reserved as affordable for low-, moderate- and middle-income families.

I could do without the zombies on the lawn. They should really do multi-seasoned renderings when unveiling them. Imagine that view with a snow covered lawn.

City moves forward on Hunter's Point South

Quote:
The de Blasio administration took the first steps last week to furthering a 30-acre, Bloomberg-era economic development project on the Long Island City, Queens, waterfront known as Hunter's Point South that will eventually be home to up to 5,000 units of housing.

The city is moving forward with a nearly $100 million construction project to build both a new waterfront park and a series of roads, water mains and sewer lines that will eventually support the final buildings of the initiative. On Friday, the city's Economic Development Corp. issued a request for proposals for part of the job.

"This RFP will help us build upon the incredible success of Hunter's Point South so far, continuing to transform an abandoned industrial site into a dynamic, mixed-use community, and reconnecting Queens residents to the waterfront," said EDC spokesman Ian Fried.

The city-led project is billed as the largest housing development in more than three decades, and all told is set to bring at least 3,000 below market rate units to the formerly gritty peninsula in Long Island City.

The site was designed to stem the loss of middle-income housing in the city and two buildings already under construction will boast 900 affordable units that will serve, for example, families of four making between $55,000 to $158,000 annually, based on federal guidelines.

And in former Mayor Michael Bloomberg's final month in office, the the city Department of Housing Preservation and Development selected a partnership between TF Cornerstone and the nonprofit Selfhelp Community Services to build a 1,193-unit complex where about two-thirds of the apartments will be below-market rate.

Friday's request will literally lay the groundwork for the last part of the project, which should entail the construction of an additional 3,000 units, though the exact number of affordable units and the income range they will serve has not yet been set in stone.

Phase 2 of Hunters Point South Megaproject Is Now Underway





Quote:
Mayor Bill de Blasio broke ground on a series of infrastructural projects set to take place at the site, including work on the second part of an 11-acre park, new streets with sewers, water mains, and utility work. This phase of construction will also see the addition of 3,000 new units of housing, 60 percent of which will be for low- and middle-income families. Construction on this phase of housing will commence right after the infrastructural work is complete sometime in 2018.

"We're building a new neighborhood from the ground-up, from its streets to its parks to its transit," said de Blasio. "This is going to be the biggest affordable housing project built in a generation, and it's going to ensure that this corner of Queens—despite all the market pressures driving up rents—will remain a diverse place for working people."

Phase I of the development includes 2,000 units of housing, 925 of which have already been built in the form of two entirely affordable buildings: Hunters Point South Commons and Crossing. The entire expanse of this 30-acre megaproject has already seen the construction of three schools seating 1,000 students and a 2,300-square-foot urban farm and apiary. More commercial and community spaces will follow in the second phase. The 11-acre public park, when finished, will include a playground, a waterside promenade, and an elevated cafe plaza.

The city has committed close to $100 million for the second phase of this project as part of the Housing New York plan. The city is working with several architects and developers on the different phases of the project. The landscape of the park is being developed by Weiss/Manfredi and Thomas Balsley Associates, while the residential buildings are being developed by Related, Monadnock, and Phipps Houses.

Long Island City to Get New Elementary School at Hunters Point South



Quote:
One of the three new schools planned for the neighborhood in the coming years will be built at the Hunters Point South development, according to city officials.

A $60 million elementary school will be included in the second phase of construction of the mixed-use affordable housing complex, slated for a parcel of waterfront land south of 54th Avenue.

It will be a standalone building located on a portion of the site bound by 57th Avenue, Center Boulevard, 56th Avenue and Second Street — streets that have not yet been constructed. The school will serve 600 students, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020, according to the Department of Education and City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer's office.


Officials broke ground on the second phase of Hunters Point South on Nov. 23, 2015. This phase will include building infrastructures, like sidewalks and roads, on a portion of formerly industrial land in order to build affordable housing.

LONG ISLAND CITY — One of the three new schools planned for the neighborhood in the coming years will be built at the Hunters Point South development, according to city officials.

A $60 million elementary school will be included in the second phase of construction of the mixed-use affordable housing complex, slated for a parcel of waterfront land south of 54th Avenue.

It will be a standalone building located on a portion of the site bound by 57th Avenue, Center Boulevard, 56th Avenue and Second Street — streets that have not yet been constructed. The school will serve 600 students, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020, according to the Department of Education and City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer's office.


Officials announced the new school Thursday during a meeting of the Gantry Parent Association, a neighborhood group that's been advocating for more school seats in Hunters Point.

The area currently has just one elementary school, P.S./I.S. 78, where the DOE was forced to add additional pre-k and kindergarten classes last year to accommodate dozens of local students who were initially waitlisted there.

Massive Queens apartment project adds elementary school as rail tunnel forces redesign

Quote:
A Manhattan-based developer is reconfiguring its planned 1,197-unit Hunters Point South apartment complex because of the complex engineering involved in accommodating an Amtrak tunnel and power lines that run under the city-owned project site, Crain's has learned. As part of the new design, developer TF Cornerstone will include a 600-seat school for the rapidly growing neighborhood on the Queens waterfront.

"The plan changed, and it needed to change based on what they discovered underneath the site," said City Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer, who represents the area and pushed for the elementary seats. "But their delay is to the benefit of the 600 kids who will be able to go to that school."

Van Bramer said the city last week sent TF Cornerstone a letter confirming its intent to build the school.

In 2013, the Bloomberg administration selected the developer and nonprofit partner Selfhelp to build an ODA Architects-designed residential project, including 700 affordable apartments, and 100 more reserved for seniors on part of the Queens peninsula dubbed Hunters Point South.

Nearly two and a half years later, though, blueprints have yet to be finalized. Amtrak and the New York Power Authority must sign off on the plans. Amtrak has been negotiating with TF Cornerstone since March 2015 to ensure construction doesn't damage the rail tunnel.

It is not clear what aspect of the underground infrastructure took the developers by surprise, given that plans for the peninsula released in 2008 indicated whoever controlled the site would have to build around multiple easements.

TF Cornerstone referred questions about the project to the city. A spokesman for City Hall said the city is in “productive discussions” about adding a school to the site, but did not confirm that a letter of intent had been sent.

Under the original configuration, TF Cornerstone had looked at erecting an education or cultural center in a separate building on the site. But when the firm had to redraw its plans, Van Bramer and other community advocates pushed for a school to accommodate an influx of families as construction proliferates. Hunters Point South alone is set to bring 5,000 new apartments to the Long Island City waterfront, which is served by just one elementary school that is already at capacity, Van Bramer said. The school in the TF Cornerstone building will be paid for with funds announced in Mayor Bill de Blasio's preliminary budget earlier this year.

I LOVE Hunters Point. I run through Gantry Plaza park several times a week. It's one of my favorite parks in the city.

A request for proposals released Thursday to build residential and retail in the Hunter's Point South section of Long Island City, Queens

Quote:
The de Blasio administration Thursday unlocked two more development sites at Hunter's Point South, a massive city undertaking on the Long Island City, Queens, waterfront that will ultimately produce more than 5,000 units of housing.

The two parcels in question are at the southernmost tip of the 30-acre project area, where the city envisions retail, a new school and at least 750 apartments—with 450 or more being permanently affordable. The Department of Housing Preservation and Development is seeking design proposals from developers and will ultimately select a team to do the project.


"We are looking for dynamic ideas for these remaining city-owned sites at Hunter's Point South," said Vicki Been, head of the city housing agency.

The pair of sites, between 56th and 57th avenues, are two of seven that constitute the overall Hunter's Point South project authorized by a 2008 rezoning under the Bloomberg administration. The first two parcels, between Borden and 50th avenues, were completed last year by a team led by Related Cos.

The third development parcel has not gone as smoothly. More than two years after the city selected TF Cornerstone to build roughly 1,200 units on a plot between Borden and 54th avenues, the project is still facing design difficulties because of complex infrastructure, including an easement for Amtrak's 34th Street tunnel, beneath the site. In 2013, the city completed a waterfront park near the three parcels.

Work is currently underway on extending that waterfront park beyond 57th Avenue along the remaining four parcels: two that are being used as staging areas for construction equipment and two others that are the plots now being offered up for development.

In the city's request for proposals expected to be released Thursday, developers are required to dedicate at least 60% of the apartments to permanently affordable housing geared toward a variety of household incomes. The developer will determine rent levels, though the city said it prefers proposals that skew toward serving lower-income households. In addition, responses will need to include community facility space, which is rented to a certain class of tenant deemed to have some sort of community benefit, such as a nonprofit or a doctor.

The city has also committed to building a school on one of the plots, which City Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer said is sorely needed in the growing neighborhood.

"We have had this enormous influx of new residents, but schools just haven't kept pace," said Van Bramer, who also recently helped negotiate to have a school included in TF Cornerstone's building. Both have already been funded and will be built by the School Construction Authority.

Proposals are due in September, and the city expects to announce a winner in early 2017.
